A Few Strong To Severe Thunderstorms Are Possible Between 3 pm This Afternoon & 9 pm This Evening: A mixture of sunshine and clouds will continue across Western and Central Mass into this afternoon. In addition, it will be hot and humid with high temperatures between 87 and 91 Degrees.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop across Western and Central Mass starting around 3 pm this afternoon with the scattered thunderstorm activity continuing until about 9 pm this evening. Given the heat and humidity, the atmosphere will be quite unstable this afternoon. This means that a few of the thunderstorms will be strong to severe with the main risk being strong wind gusts and localized flooding from heavy rainfall. Frequent lightning is also expected from the thunderstorms that do develop this afternoon and this evening.
